  • Posted in thread: Used lactic acid to pre-acidify my wort, is this ok? on 04-20-2016 at 03:19 AM
    I am still using live bacteria (lacto plantarum), i just used the lactic acid to drop the pH to
    4.5 in order to keep off other unwanted stuff. Im just wondering if the added lactic acid
    solution will ...

    Yes, so I can confirm the 4.5 pH at 60*F reading pre-boil.

    So I recently purchased some probiotic lacto plantarum capsules for kettle sours and brewed the
    wort today. I wanted to lower the pH to 4.5 before adding the lacto so I used 3 teaspoons in
    7.5 gallons...

    So after reading this thread, I picked up some of the swansons capsules as well. I was
    wondering though, do you guys open the capsules and dump in the contents or just throw the
    whole capsule into the...

  • Posted in thread: It is ok to add packaging yeast to carboy instead of bottling bucket?? on 03-31-2016 at 02:32 PM
    I'm aware of everything you said Revvy, i've been brewing for almost 10 years haha. I'm just
    looking to avoid excess yeast that could be caused by adding a whole packet to the bottling
    bucket. I was p...

  • Posted in thread: Stuck London III on 03-31-2016 at 04:38 AM
    I just did an all whirlpool hopped IPA recently and decided to use the London III. I usually
    end up around 1.011-1.013 for my IPA's with most yeasts and the London III finished around
    1.015, and that ...

  • Posted in thread: It is ok to add packaging yeast to carboy instead of bottling bucket?? on 03-31-2016 at 04:31 AM
    So I have a year-plus old sour that I plan to bottle very soon. I have the danstar cask
    conditioning yeast to add for bottle conditioning, and was wondering it it would be ok to add
    this to the second...

  • Posted in thread: Kegging without the trub on 02-17-2016 at 02:58 AM
    I fill kegs of heavily dry hopped beer all the time from the primary with no issues. Just don't
    move the carboy the day you are racking because you will get a lot of particles in suspension.
    Just get ...

  • Posted in thread: HELP! the tip of my auto siphon fell off into my 5 gallon whiskey barrel!!! on 01-19-2016 at 01:12 AM
    So after two weeks of aging my imperial vanilla porter in a used balcones whiskey barrel for
    the first time, I went to go transfer into the keg today and made a BIG mistake! It looked like
    the auto-si...

  • Posted in thread: HELP: added dextrose to whirpool, did I screw up my IPA? on 01-13-2016 at 07:13 PM
    Thanks for the fast responses! Well, the gravity wasn't affected so hopefully the hop character
    isn't either. The hops went in only a minute or so before the sugar, so I'm hoping the less
    dense wort i...
